Crowd is building up! They were on the coast for a moment. First of the little kicks now. Van Baarle has gone on an attack with 3 others.

19km to go, Bookwalter is the BMC man in this lead group, they don't have much gap though

18km to go. Astana leading the chase to the little group off the front.

It's Basso, Tulik and Chetout, Van Baarle isn't there. Not sure who the Euskadi man is.

The gap is about 6 or 7 seconds. The chasing pack are blowing up one by one but it's a big group. Cav's group are 2 minutes down and irrelevant now.

Cavendish over 2'00" down. 16km to go.

The 5 breakers now have 12 seconds. 10km

Chasing pack riding hard and suddenly it's all back together! 9km to go.

Aqua Blue and Direct Energie lead the way. BMC definitely want this today, GVA looking good. Little attacks are tried and neutralised. 7km

Sky showing their faces with van Baarle, Doull and Stannard up front. 6km
